Hey all total noob here to cctv so bear with me here .My 68 year old mother/grandma is getting a bit older now and seems to think EVERY door to door salesman or random stranger that comes and rings the bell is completley harmless and means no harm so she goes outside closing the front door because dogs are barking like crazy goes through the security door and greets them at the gate where any damn thing could happen.Shes too trusting these days! She had my brother completley remove the burglar alarm from the house because she doesnt feel threatened in the neighborhood lol. So kinda hit up a buddy who is the only one i really know who even has a cctv system for some help and he gave me some older than dirt Watch Dog DW-VMAX 4 that works but whatever after the armfulls of cameras he has given me to try out most bullet style and fixed dome ones anyways the best ones are up and look ok in the day while others look like garbage but work great at night so she lives on a pretty long street where on 1 side of the street is block wall and alot of random people just park and do all sorts of crap so i need some advice on being able to get a good clear view both night and day down both directions of the street and driveway and being mounted from under or on the eve about 12'-14' up. Was looking into PTZ that could zoom in real good to about 500 ft night and day but damn those things get up there in price fast Maybe few hundred I would be comfortable spending on one of them lol. Or would just putting 2 either bullets or them wall mount dome looking things up under the lower eves that are about 9' up be better. From what shes got up now its a start but a crappy one at that. So this is where you Pro guys here on the site come in whats going to give her /me the sharpest picture both day and night and not be all crazy expensive a security system straight from a box with dvr and cams etc or piecing one together like a cam or dvr every 2 weeks or so being im a single dad of 2 girls she watches so hense this system needs to be kinda ok loll. Probably looking into at least an 8 channel for future ad ons .Any help and a point in the right direction is greatly appreciated and THANK YOU in advance yall

To partially answer your questions, get turret/eyeball style cameras, not bullets. Spiders will drive you absolutely nuts with their webs on bullet cameras.
Mounting 12-14 ft high may be too high for facial identification.
Others will pipe in with more advice, hopefully.

Ok sorry guys but ive been trying to figure out what my next ebay or amazon turret cam purchase will be here and now after 2 hours of window shopping im just more confused as ever ! lol ive read the DAHUA STARLIGHT 4mp torret cameras are a good buy for the clarity of night vision and the price @ $50-$100 is about what i want to spend per cam but if one of you professionals could please share a link or something that I could just go and buy that would be greatly appreciated . I currently have a hand me down WATCH DOG DW-VMAX 4 dvr that runs NTSF / PAL . I am not planning on running this for 2 long upgrading to whatever when the time comes here probably in the next few months or so to something along the lines of an 8 to ??? channel dvr or nvr havent done homework yet so. Any help is greatly appreciated and thanks guys have a great day

You need a home security solution which gives you real time notification whenever suspicious event is triggered. Check this: http://gizmosmart.com/mini-home-security-system/
